Celebrate food and dance on Nov. 14 with the farmers market

William and Sabrina Shelton of Shelton Family Farms and Ron and Cathy Arps of Vegenui Garden are sponsoring an end-of-the-season celebration for the members of their CSAs and the vendors at the Jackson County Farmers Market beginning at 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 14 in conjunction with the November Second Sunday Contra Dance at the former Golden Age Club (GAC).

The plan is for members of the dance community and food community to join together for a fun-raising, which will include music and dancing (contra, kids and more) and potluck dinner to follow at 5:30 p.m.

The event will also be a fundraiser for the Community Table to provide funds to renovate the kitchen facilities and to make the whole building more energy efficient.

The former Golden Age Club (GAC) is next to the Sylva Swimming Pool on Municipal Drive. Turn off Grindstaff Cove Road between the Presbyterian Church and BB&T and then take the next right into the Poteet Park parking lot. (From the Bridge Park Pavilion, it is across the bridge and just beyond Poteet Park.)
